Windsor plays up to No. 1 ranking

Softball

Windsor 13, Norwich 0

WINDSOR – Norwich ran into the number one team in the state Tuesday, and came up empty on the scoreboard.

Windsor pitcher Cara Martin tossed a one-hit shutout victory striking out eight batters. Martin was aided by Emma Benson, who went 3-for-4 with three runs, and Shelly Tucker who had a two hits and four RBI.

“There is a reason they are the number one team in the state,” said Norwich coach Dennis Eaton of Windsor. “They hit the ball well and have one heck of a pitcher.”



Norwich’s Jamie Berger had seven strikeouts in the loss, and the Norwich defense played its first error-free game this season.

Deposit 15, Oxford 7

OXFORD – Oxford committed five errors in Deposit’s seven-run second inning, and that propelled the Lumberjacks to a MAC league win Tuesday.

The setback was the first in four contests for Oxford this season. Tiffany Raymond led the Deposit attack with a 4-for-5 day and three RBI.

Teresa Morrison reached base safely for Oxford in all of her trips to plate winding up 3-for-3. Julianne Heggie drove in a team-high three runs for Oxford, who host Harpursville today.

Greene 15, Afton 3

AFTON – In a rematch of last year’s Midstate Athletic Conference championship game, Afton was no match for the unbeaten Trojans.

Greene racked up 18 basehits, and blew the game wide open with nine runs in the fourth inning to create a 13-0 lead.

“This was not what I expected, but I was really happy with how we hit the ball,” said Greene coach Rick Smith. “I was confident we could hit the ball, and we ran the bases really aggressively. The only down thing was the four errors. I think we lost our focus late in the game.”
